Spent a fun morning adding extra layers to my vintage pointy hats and wings (see below) - am now worried in case it's overdone. How I wish I could be neater! I feel a little happer with these - but not 100%.
Collage is out of my comfort zone - however I have a tremendous admiration for my friends who can do this really well. So I always enter a collage swap with some trepidation. This one is for 'pointy hats and wings'. I played safe with vintage ladies. They are kind of ok but I wish they merged into the background rather more. Suggestions welcome.
Nevertheless I enjoyed myself. If you want to see how it should be done visit Roc's or Cathy's blogs.
Having completed my little sequence of bird cards I have finished off with a postcard. Gladys has gone to greet the new neighbours. I move to other fields now (witches for Halloween?) - but I expect Gladys will return someday...
I celebrate the start of every new term - and the fact that I have retired - by taking my wife out for a good lunch. Today we dined on quiche with salad, and fruit crumble. Afterwards I drew this rather chubby red squirrel.
